Tá Óstán Loch Altan suite i sráidbhaile Ghort a' Choirce i gceartlár Ghaeltacht Thír Chonaill idir an fharraige ar thaobh amháin agus faoi scáth an Eargail agus na Mucaise ar an taobh eile. Faigheann sé a ainm ó loch beag álainn atá neadaithe ag bun an Eargail, an sliabh is airde i dTír Chonaill. Sa cheantar seo is í an Ghaeilge gnáth-theanga labhartha na ndaoine - ceantar ina bhfuil ceol, amhráin agus damhsaí traidisiúnta á gcleachtadh go nádúrtha ann.
Tugtar tús áite don Ghaeilge san óstán i gcónaí ach is cuma cén teanga a labhraíonn na haíonna agus na cuairteoirí cuirfidh foireann an óstáin fáilte faoi leith rompu go léir. Cuirtear béim an-láidir fosta ar gach gné den chultúr Gaelach idir sheanchas, cheol, amhranaíocht agus dhamhsa.
